Bed Bugs are an age old problem. Find some answers here
Apr. 23, 2019

lBed bugs, infestations are increasingly common in North America.  They have taken up residence in schools, shelters, houses, apartments, motels, health care facilities, buses, offices, movie theatres and more. The common bed bug, Crimex lectularis, is a one-quarter-inch-long brown insect with a flattened body. It feeds only on the blood of warm-blooded animals, preferably humans. These little bugs are very resilient; the young can survive for months and the adults for a year or more without feeding. 

Bed bugs can’t fly, but that does not stop them from moving quickly over floors, walls, ceilings, and other surfaces. Females lay one or two eggs per day in secluded places, totaling hundreds of eggs in a lifetime. During the day bed bugs hide in tiny crevices close to the places where people sleep. 

Mattresses, box springs, headboards, and bed frames are perfect hiding places for bed bugs. Infestations typically start near beds, but quickly spread throughout the room and to adjacent rooms.
